Interview0 Comments

In a Rolling Stone interview, Carney comments on his earlier feud with Bieber:

Justin Bieber, like a f*cking irresponsible asshole, sicced 40 million Twitter followers on me because I paid him a compliment he didn’t understand. I’m saying that he should be grateful that he has a f*cking career in music. And he shouldn’t be f*cking telling his followers to slap me, and then also be doing anti-bullying bullsh*t. It’s so irresponsible.
